    Black Drawing Salve Recipe



     Black drawing salve is  a natural remedy I first heard about when visiting a local Amish community to pick up produce and eggs. I saw one of the farmer’s sons applying what looked like tar to his arm after getting a large splinter from a fence post.

    I asked what he was putting on his arm and was told that it was a drawing salve to help pull out the splinter and make sure the area didn’t get infected. I was fascinated and wondered if it would work and if it would stain the skin.

    The farmer assured me that it didn’t stain the skin and that they used it all the time in their community to help with wound healing and drawing out things that were stuck in the skin. He said that it was even effective on some spider bites for drawing out the venom.

    I asked if there was a place to buy it, and was told that they made it themselves but the farmer offered to write down the recipe for me.

    We’ve been making variations of this recipe ever since. It takes a while to make but is very effective and well worth the time. We especially use it for splinters and pieces of glass that get stuck in the skin.

    I have not tried it personally, but black drawing salves are also said to help remove moles and skin tags, and there are many stories of it removing skin cancer!

    Black Salve Ingredients:

    What to Do:

    Before making the salve, it is important to infuse olive oil with comfrey, calendula and plantain. You will need 1 tablespoon of each of the herbs, finely powdered in a food processor or blender, and 1/2 cup olive oil. It can be infused in one of these two ways:

    1. Powder the herbs and place in a small jar. Pour oil over the herbs. Leave in jar for 3-4 weeks, shaking daily, and then strain through a cheesecloth for use.
    2. Heat the herbs and olive oil in a double boiler. Leave on low/medium heat for about an hour until oil gets strong smelling and darker. Strain through cheesecloth for use.

    Personally, I keep a big jar of olive oil with plantain, comfrey and calendula in my herb cabinet and let it constantly infuse for use in salves and lotions. When the oil is used, I discard the herbs and begin the process again.

    To make the salve:

    Combine infused olive oil, shea butter, coconut oil, beeswax, vitamin E oil and honey in a glass jar in a small pan of water. Heat the water to a simmer and carefully stir mixture in the jar until all ingredients are melted.

    Remove from heat and add activated charcoal, kaolin clay, and lavender essential oil and mix well.

    Quickly pour in to small jars or tins and let sit until hardened (several hours).

    Store in airtight container and use as needed on cuts, splinters, etc.

    How to Use Black Salve:

    Make sure area has been cleaned well. Put a generous amount of black salve on the wound or splinter and cover with gauze or a large bandaid.

    Leave at least a few hours or overnight to allow it to draw out the infection or object. Some things (like glass… in my experience) may take a day or two and several applications to draw out an object.

    This salve is a wonderful natural remedy but it is not a replacement for medical care when needed. Consult a doctor before using if you have any health conditions or concerns.

    You can make natural insect repellent yourself. The insect repellent is safe and effective, plus it costs much less to make it than to buy it.

    There are a few different formulations you can make for your natural insect repellent. These repellents involve diluting essential oils that the insects find distasteful or which confuses them. The oils don’t mix with water, so you’ll need to add them to other oils or to alcohol. It’s important to use an oil or alcohol that is safe for your skin. Also, don’t go overboard with the essential oils. The oils are potent and could cause skin irritation or another reaction if you use too much. If you are pregnant or nursing, do not apply an insect repellent, natural or otherwise, until after you’ve gotten it cleared by your physician.
    Natural Insect Repellent Ingredients
    Different insects are repelled by different chemicals, so you’ll get a more effective repellent if you combine a few different insect-repelling natural oils. If you are making large amounts of insect repellent, a good rule of thumb is to mix the repellent so it’s 5-10% essential oil, so mix 1 part essential oil with 10-20 parts carrier oil or alcohol. For a smaller batch use:

    * 10-25 drops (total) of essential oils
    * 2 tablespoons of a carrier oil or alcohol

    The essential oils that work well against biting insects (mosquitoes, flies, ticks, fleas) are:

    * cinnamon oil (mosquitoes)
    * lemon eucalyptus or regular eucalyptus oil (mosquitoes, ticks, and lice)
    * citronella oil (mosquitoes and biting flies)
    * castor oil (mosquitoes)
    * orange oil (fleas)
    * rose geranium (ticks and lice)

    Safe carrier oils and alcohols include:

    * olive oil
    * sunflower oil
    * any other cooking oil
    * witch hazel
    * vodka

    Natural Insect Repellent Recipe
    Mix the essential oil with the carrier oil or alcohol. Rub or spray the natural insect repellent onto skin or clothing, using care to avoid the sensitive eye area. You’ll need to re-apply the natural product after about an hour or after swimming or exercise. Unused natural insect repellent may be stored in a dark bottle, away from heat or sunlight. If you wish, you may combine the oil with aloe vera gel to change the consistency of the product.

    “The muffins will come out moist and naturally sweet with a little bit of a crunchy texture from the nuts. For a richer texture, you can add some raisins, walnuts or even some carrot shavings (or pulp from carrot juice). The possibilities are endless and so is the guilt! The more healthy ingredients you add, the more nutrient rich these muffins will be.

    If you do not own a dehydrator, some toaster ovens are equipped with a dehydrator option. Or, you can “bake” these on the lowest oven temperature your oven will allow. My oven will not go lower than 200 degrees. Anything heated over 118 degrees is not considered raw. However, if you do bake these on low temperatures, they will still be a healthier muffin than the supermarket varieties that contain additives, preservatives and unhealthful oils and fats.

    When I am forced to “bake” raw dishes in the oven, I cut the time needed if I was to dehydrate in half. You just need to keep an eye on them to be sure that they don’t dry out.”

    1 tablespoon raw whole golden flax seeds, ground into a meal in a coffee grinder or small food processor
    ¼ cup raw oat groats, ground into a powder/flour
    ¾ cup raw organic almonds, ground into a powder/flour
    Dashes of cinnamon and nutmeg
    3 tbsp water
    1 ripe banana, mashed up really well
    1 tablespoon agave
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract

    Combine the ground oats, ground almonds, and cinnamon and nutmeg in a bowl.
    Whisk flax seed and water together briskly
    Add to mixture of ground oats and almonds
    Add mashed banana and combine well.
    Place mini muffin paper liners into a pan. Spoon a small amount into each mini muffin liner. Press down to pack with the edge of a spoon or your finger.

    Dehydrate muffins at 105 degrees for about 4 hours.
    Remove the muffin liners from the pan and dehydrate for another 6 hours or until desired consistency.

    If you are baking a low heat, bake at 200 degrees for about 5 hours. Check muffins during baking to be sure that they don’t dry out.

    This healthy muffin recipe makes about 12 mini-muffins.

    Last day of our Jack LaLanne tribute…

    I really hoped you enjoyed this week and had a lot of fun with us. I know I enjoyed doing the videos, I really haven’t had that much energy in the show for a while, so it’s nice to be back!
